"NEW YORK (AP) — A 1950 Neal Cassady letter that inspired Jack Kerouac's spontaneous style in 'On the Road' is heading to auction where it's expected to bring up to $600,000.

Christie's says title claims to the letter that were raised during a small California auction in 2014 — in which the letter was withdrawn — have been resolved, allowing the letter to be offered at its upcoming books and manuscripts sale.", www.seattlepi.com
